It’s won­der­ful to learn about ways to im­prove lives of de­men­tia pa­tients

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the July 31 Out­liers item “Com­mu­nist-era kitsch com­forts de­men­tia pa­tients in for­mer East Ger­many” (p. 36), any­thing that can im­prove the lives of pa­tients stricken with Alzheimer’s dis­ease is won­der­ful. Clin­i­cally get­ting them con­nected to var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties has been shown to help, es­pe­cially if it should bring back any mem­o­ries.
